Safer Sex is Sweet Week
Nov 19, 2019 by Carissa Ruf
In recognition of World AIDS Day, the Office of Health Promotion is hosting our annual Safer Sex is Sweet Week from Monday, December 2 - Saturday, December 7. World AIDS Day is an opportunity for people worldwide to unite in the fight against HIV, show their support for people living with HIV, and remember those who have died from HIV/AIDS. Started in 1988, World AIDS Day was the first ever global health day.
Our goal is to provide you with resources and information on safer sex practices! Safer sex supplies and Choosing to Abstain kits will be available all week. Be sure to stop by during our daily events on campus (including Safer Sexy Land and Sex Toy Bingo) to purchase a safer sex themed chocolate lollipop (benefiting Planned Parenthood) and for the chance to receive a FREE T-SHIRT while supplies last!
